    I know that sexing a 4 week old chick is hard but...i have a feeling that Daisy is a cockerel not a pullet... (sorry that the pic isn't good...she/he wouldn't stay still)

    If it is a cockerel...what should his new name be?

    Yep, you have yourself a little manly man. You should change the name from Daisy to Duke :p

    Definitely a cockerel. No way a pullet could ever have that much color at 4 weeks.
     
  6. Hes not THAT manly, my turken rooster (same age) is WAY more manly, he already (i think) tries to breed [​IMG]

    I had a feeling it was a cockerel [​IMG]...Seems like every time i name a chick it turns out to be the opposite gender (Ex: Dale - pullet, Hawk - pullet, Danny - pullet, and Daisy - cockerel...)
    I give up naming things until they turn at least 4 weeks and i have an idea on the gender....
     
  8. No! it was fun! like Joey, we thought was cockeral but pullet, still cute!!


    and Danny was a cute pullet name!

    and it was SO funny, first time ever you name a chicken a girl name, first time its a cockeral [​IMG]

    maybe i should just give boy names to my chicks [​IMG] then they will be all pullets (if this luck continues) right [​IMG]
